The Islamic world has a poor record in terms of modernization and democracy. However, the source of this situation is not religion - Islam - but factors including colonialism, international economic and trading systems, and the role of military among others. Recognizing these themes allows the consideration of possible remedies for change in the Muslim world.
"[A] book with the tripartite title Modernization, Democracy, and Islam may be said to cover all bases, and it does just that. The quality articles treat such diverse subjects as the econometric dimension, the role of the military, comparisons between the Middle East and Latin America, and gender inequality."
"Recommended. General readers, secondary school students, and lower-division undergraduates."
